Nadine’s Nuggets ~ Exploring Bach Flower Remedies
Hello Dear Friends, and Welcome to a new edition of NADINE’S NUGGETS ~ morsels of information from various arenas including Naturopathy, Homeopathy, Herbology, Personal Training and Nutrition.
This issue offers information about Bach Flower Remedies and features a few possible applications for Humans, Animals and Flowers. I have also included a bit of information on upcoming classes and the launch of a Blog out on the main website. Please consider this my personal invitation to Come and PLAY with me.
Edward Bach developed 38 Flower Essences or Remedies as a safe and natural method of healing. When a person is in a negative state, such as fear, worry, hatred or indecision, their energy field is distorted or out of harmony. Such a distortion slows down the energy field affecting their entire psyche. The flowers used in the Bach Remedies are of a higher order, each embodying a certain Soul quality harmonious with the energy frequencies of the Soul (Higher Self).
The Bach Flower Remedy floods the energy pathways and acts as a form of catalyst to re-establish contact where the energy waves have become broken. The blockage causing the disharmony is gently dissolved, allowing the Higher Self to communicate with the Body. As Love, Joy, Peace, Courage and Happiness return, BALANCE is restored to the Being as a Whole so that the Body is free to “heal itself”.
WALNUT ~ helps with new beginnings in the mental and spiritual sphere, and proves useful in major stages of biological change such as in teething, puberty, pregnancy, menopause or in the terminal stages of physical life. Bach wrote that Walnut is ‘the Remedy for those who have decided to take a great step forward in life, to break old conventions, to leave old limits and restrictions and start on a new way.’ If you find you have made a choice to move in a new direction or take on a new challenge, have your bags packed and are sitting in your boat, but the boat is still tied to the dock, Walnut is the remedy to choose.
For Animals: Walnut restores the ability to adapt to change. Examples include; females coming into season or heat, during pregnancy, after neutering, during teething and weaning and for before and after anesthesia.
For Plants: In the garden, Walnut will assist the transition from one growth phase to the next and helps with cut flowers due to the change in environment.
Affirmation: I follow my Inner Guidance and Embrace this new phase of my journey.
